Subject External Table Size
Author Hardy Sherwood
The following error occurred when attempted to insert an external table into
an internal table. The external table is about 2.1 GB. This occurred on a
windows XP pro system with an NTFS file system.

Unhandled Exception: FirebirdSql.Data.FirebirdClient.FbException: I/O error

Is the error due to a limit on external table size? Is it possible to
insert an external table larger than 2GB into an internal table? If so,
please let me know how?

Thank you,
